Flameproof & Weatherproof Electric Eqpt [0]

It should mean an outlet for an electric connection which can be sited in an open position with no shelter from the weather, and which can safely continue to provide power with the plug inserted in bad weather (rain,wind). These are essential on open sites like caravan sites, and in large gardens where you can't plug in inside the house. The degree of weatherproofing may vary somewhat, and there should always be provided fast acting earth leakage and overcurrent protection on the supply either before the outlet or incorporated in it.
